Samsung announces new software overlay - One UI 3.0

Image Description

Samsung made a surprise announcement at the Galaxy Unpacked event with regards to One UI at the launch event yesterday. As per the announcement, Samsung’s next UI will be called One UI 3.0 and a beta program will soon begin for the Galaxy S20 series of devices.

The pre-beta, which is what Samsung likes to call it, is essentially a closed beta and going by the company’s words, the Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra devices only in the US and South Korea will be getting it as of yet. Once that happens, a rollout to other regions such as India should follow quickly The new UI will be based on Android 11 release and to get it, users on the above mentioned regions must apply and ask for partner’s permissions.

To be precise, the devices that will be getting the update include all the unlocked variants of the S20 series in both the regions but only T-Mobile and Sprint carrier versions in the United States and KT, LG U+ and SKT models in South Korea.

That said, Samsung also announced that it will be committing to a three year upgrade system for flagships technically starting with Galaxy S9 series which means the S series of flagships from 2018 through to the S20 Ultra are guaranteed to get upto Android 12 in 2021.

Regardless of this being a welcoming change from the company, it is refreshing to see Samsung including two-year old flagships. Having said that, Google’s Android 11 is due for a debut and Samsung said that after initial testing of closed beta, it will soon open an Open Beta for the One UI 3.0 based on Android 11 to users of China, Germany, India, Poland, Republic of Korea, United Kingdom and the United States.

However, the release date of both Open and Closed Beta for that matter is not known yet. The company just launched the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra and we will have to wait and see what new changes the One UI 3.0 brings to the table.

  • TSMC set to begin production on Apple’s 3nm chips in latter half of 2022

    Major chip producer TSMC seems to be on target to start production of its 3nm chips later this year, which is good news for Apple’s next-generation processors.

    A new DigiTimes Asia report states that the company is set to manufacture 30,000 to 35,000 wafers using the 3nm process technology. iPads are expected to be the first Apple product outfitted with the chips, according to Wccftech, though no specific models have been mentioned.

    Apple’s M3 and A17 chips are expected to make their debut in 2023 for iPhone, iPad, and Macs. These chips will offer better performance and improved battery life,  and previous rumors indicate that the 3nm chips will feature four dies, which would allow for up to 40 cores. The Apple M1 chip, in contrast, has eight cores while the M1 Pro and M1 Max have up to 10 cores.

    Analysis: Is TSMC behind schedule?

    This new report supports previous rumors concerning TSMC’s 3nm chip production schedule. However, there was some troubling news earlier this year, which suggested that the tech giant may be having issues producing the chips.

    The semiconductor production process is tricky and it’s not uncommon to have faulty batches as a side effect. Though many of these faulty chips can then be repurposed for lower-powered versions, too many mistakes could be disastrous.

    TSMC commands a high position in the semiconductor industry, especially with the semiconductor shortage as it’s able to provide a steady supply of chips to other companies. But if TSMC fails to master its 3nm process, it could impact AMD, Nvidia, and others would need to rely on 5nm tech instead.

  • Microsoft’s Black Friday bargains include up to £580 off Surface devices

    If you’re looking to buy a Surface device, then there are a bunch of Black Friday deals now live on Microsoft’s own store, and also with partner retailers like Amazon and John Lewis.

    These offers range across the board from the high-end Surface Book 3, which has reductions of up to £580 on the boil right now, through to the affordable Surface Go 2 which has still had £190 slashed off the asking price, so you can now get the version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage for just £339.

    That’s quite a deal indeed considering that the entry-level Go 2 normally costs £399 with half that RAM and storage.

    As well as all this, there are discounts on accessories at Microsoft’s online store, with up to 30% off, and price cuts on Surface hardware that Microsoft has refurbished (which includes savings of up to £180 on already cheaper prices).

    These deals run through until at least December 3 – while stock lasts – or later, with one exception, the aforementioned offer on the Surface Go 2, which finishes on December 2 and is picked out below. Check out that and the other top discounts we’ve highlighted below, or head to the Microsoft store to peruse bargains on the Surface Laptop 4 (saving up to £220), or the Surface Laptop Go (again, with up to £220 off), plus the Surface Go 2 (up to 15% off).

    Surface Go 2, Intel Pentium Gold 4425Y, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD: £529 £339 at Amazon
    The Go 2 is a seriously affordable Windows tablet, and this is the model above the base version equipped with double the memory and storage. With £190 knocked off the price, it’s even more of a bargain, and this is a deal that likely won’t hang around for long.

    Surface Laptop Go, Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD: £699 £499 at Amazon
    In our review, we enthused that the Surface Laptop Go redefines the budget laptop, and this super-slick portable will trouble your wallet even less with this £200 discount. It’s a beefier model which avoids the slower eMMC drive on the entry-level option, and doubles up the RAM into the bargain. Microsoft also has this model on offer at £559, but Amazon’s deal is even keener than that.

    Surface Laptop 4, Ryzen 5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD: £899 £699 at John Lewis
    The Surface Laptop 4 is a superb notebook with a top-notch keyboard, among other benefits, and a £200 discount on this entry-level model – which still offers plenty of power, yet remains nicely portable – is another great bargain for Black Friday. Remember that John Lewis also provides a two-year guarantee.

    Surface Book 3 15-inch, Core i7, 32GB RAM, 512GB SSD: £2,699 £2,125 at Microsoft
    There are some major price cuts on the Surface Book 3 hybrid at Microsoft’s store, and one of the choicest is this Core i7 15-inch model with a whopping 32GB of system RAM, which is reduced by £574. If you need more storage, the 1TB version has been knocked down by a similar amount, but runs to a slightly pricier £2,319. Neither machine is anything like cheap, of course, but these are still serious savings.
